Both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara are out for their Thanksgiving game against the Bills. Their absence will push Tony Jones Jr. into a much bigger role tonight. Jones Jr. came off injured reserve last week and was second in snaps behind Ingram last week.
Fantasy Football analysis: Tony Jones Jr, RB, Saints
Jones Jr. will face a good Bills defense, that have been good against the run except when they play Derrick Henry or Jonathan Taylor. Jones hasn’t ever had a big role in the offense, but he did beat out Latavius Murray in the preseason. Unfortunately an injury kept him out for over a month.
Other than Jones, Ty Montgomery should see some work, but is likely going to be used more as a receiver.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Jones is a start in most leagues, as he should see a good workload, both on the ground and in the air. His upside isn’t great in a poor overall offense right now, but his usage should be too good to pass up.
